Re: Question about Scenic 2005 (54 Plate) brakes

We seem to go through this scenario a lot on the forum....

Are there wear ridges on the discs at all?.If there are,then the pedal will be soft until the pads wear to the same shape as the discs.

If that doesn't happen then the seals in the master cylinders are damaged due to the pistons being pushed back either too fast or without the cap being removed from the reservoir.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
